The LiMo Foundation announced the first release of the LiMo Platfor a Linux-based software platform for mobile handsets.

Behind the LiMo foundation are some heavy weight mobile phone makers and carriers. LiMo’s initial Founder members are Motorola, NEC, NTT DoCoMo, Panasonic Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics and Vodafone.
The LiMo Platform—leveraging standards and open-source projects—is a modular, plug-in-based, hardware-independent architecture built around an open operating system, with a secure run-time environment for support of downloaded applications. Linux was selected as the core technology for the LiMo Platform for its acceptability by the whole mobile industry, its rich functionality and scalability, its record of success in embedded systems and mobile phones and its potential to easily “cross-platformize” with other product categories.

Linux is gaining more and more momentum in the mobile space. Nokia just last week bought Trolltech, another mobile Linux platform developer.


LiMo’s technology will be showcased in at Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona.
